Home to nearly half of Alaska's population, the port city of Anchorage covers a staggering area of over 4,900 sq km (1,900 sq mi) surrounded by mountains.
On the 29th (Wed), see the interesting displays at Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center. Keep things going the next day: take in the exciting artwork at Alaska Native Medical Center Craft Shop, contemplate the long history of Eklutna Village Historic Park, then deepen your understanding at Alaska Native Heritage Center, and finally identify plant and animal life at Potter Marsh Bird Sanctuary.

You can plan Anchorage trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Juneau to Anchorage is an approximately 4.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also do a combination of ferry and car. Traveling from Juneau in July, expect nights in Anchorage to be about the same, around 55°F, while days are a bit warmer, around 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel to Denali National Park and Preserve.
